Dip N’ Cast Wax

Dip N’ Cast is a wax used for dipping and coating dies. The wax ingots are available in two consistencies and each consistency in two colors. Firm consistency is available in Green and a Yellow color and the Flexible consistency in Green and Orange colors.

Product Application:

Dip N’ Cast is a wax that is melted to a liquid state in a heated dipping pot at a preset temperature. It is used to apply a uniform layer of wax in a given thickness desired by the technician to the surface of a die that is dipped into and quickly removed from the liquid wax. The choice of wax consistency and color is the decision of the technician.

Compared to competitive products, DVA’s Dip N’ Cast is characterized by:

  1. A lack of shrinkage such that generally, the re-sealing of die margins can be eliminated.
  2. The wax pattern can be removed, replaced and reseated without having to seal or reseal the margins.
  3. Demonstrates incredible consistency in dipping thickness and memory retention.

SPECIAL NOTE: Whereas a single, normal dipping thickness would provide a “normal PFM coping” layer of typically four- tenths of a millimeter in thickness, ONLY the very unique formula of DVA’s Dip N’ Cast allows the Double Dipping to quickly and uniformly obtain the recommended eight-tenths of a millimeter desired for the fabrication of Press-Ceramic Copings. “Double Dipping” without changing dip-pot temperatures or problems with wax layering! A BIG BENEFIT!

Jerry’s WOW Solution

Description & Application

DVA’S “Jerry’s WOW Solution” consists of a silicone-based liquid packaged in a 16-ounce bottle designed for use as a gypsum-to-gypsum separator. The product is characterized by its lack of odor, incredibly clean separation capabilities and economical price.

Jerry’s “WOW Solution” derives its name from its outstanding performance and economy. Nothing separates gypsum like “WOW Solution.” It’s just a “WOW” product!

Background of Product Use and Competition

There are three basic types of dental separators:

. Acrylic Separators – designed as a tin-foil substitute. Tin foil was the original separator medium used to separate denture acrylic from the stone model during polymerization procedures. Many companies now sell a separator for this procedure. DVA’s “Acrylic-Plaster Separator” (“APS”) represents a separator of this class.

. Crown and Bridge Separators – designed to separate wax patterns or porcelain margins from stone models. DVA’s “Very Special Separator” is a separator of this class.

. Gypsum Separators – designed to separate dental stone from either stone or plaster. The “WOW Solution” represents this type of separator. Gypsum separators have three basic uses:

i. They are used to separate halves of a denture flask. Vaseline (as well as other competitive products) has also been used extensively for this procedure.

ii. For the mounting of articulating plaster to full or partial denture models for use during the setting up of teeth during the fabrication of the wax pattern. Again, Vaseline and other products have been used for this operation.

iii. To separate the first, arch pour and the second, base pour of a standard, ‘pindex-type model. It is this widely-used application for which we anticipate DVA will concentrate its sales efforts on behalf of the “WOW Solution.”

 

WOW Solution PIM

The market leader used for these applications appears to be ‘Super-Sep’ by Kerr Manufacturing. “Super-Sep” is an alcohol-based liquid characterized by an extremely strong ‘alcoholic’ odor. It

is also, compared to DVA’s new product, rather expensive. DVA offers twice the volume at virtually half the price.

As successful in the marketplace as it is, we do NOT believe ‘Super-Sep’ is as effective in its separation ability as DVA’s WOW Solution! Need we say more!

Product Benefits

  • DVA’s “WOW Solution” gypsum separator
  • Totally Eliminates Odors from the working environment – it is totally odorless!
  • Improves Separation of gypsum products – it simply performs better than competitive products! “WOW” only requires one, single application, and it
  • Eliminates the need to re-soak dry models prior to making second pours.
  • Saves Money – One receives ‘twice the product for half the price!’
